According to this study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, there is a misconception that sugar free is safe. The truth is that despite being zero in the glycemic index, it has a very negative effect on our body and health and it is not safe for diabetic people either.
Is Sugar Free Really Safe?

A study published two years ago in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition examined the relationship between the consumption of sugar-free and diet products with type-2 diabetes. Is there any truth in the fact that consuming sugar free does not increase blood sugar level and insulin level and does not cause diabetes. Or if you are already diabetic, then consuming sugar free is safer for you than sugar. If you consume sugar-free sweet foods, then your diabetes will be under control.
It is important to mention here that this study was not talking about other types of dangerous chemicals found in sugar free, stevia, erythritol etc. Here only an attempt was made to understand what is the relationship of sugar free with insulin and blood sugar level.
Researchers found in their study that people who were not consuming sugar directly and instead of sugar used sugar free products, such as sugar free diet colddrinks, sugar free jam, sugar free chocolate, sugar free ice cream, sugar free cake, muffin Adi, their risk of diabetes was not at all lower than a person who eats normal sugar.
After this study, the researchers came to the conclusion that it is an illusion that sugar free is safe in diabetes. The truth is that despite being zero in the glycemic index, sugar free has a very negative effect on our body and health and it is not safe for diabetic people either.
Dr. Mark Hyme answers this question why sugar free is dangerous for health and especially for diabetic patients, despite being zero on the glycemic index. Dr. Hyam says that being sweet in taste, sugar free tricks your body and makes sure that it is going to get sweet now. In this forecast, our pancreas starts releasing insulin without actually eating sugar. Insulin is a fat storage hormone. So in fact, despite not increasing the blood sugar, the excess of insulin in the body prepares the ground for diabetes. And if you are already diabetic and suffer from insulin resistance then insulin release will be harmful.
